the very latest right now starting with cnn's ed lavandera. he's over at the movie theater where all of this unfolded. what is the very latest, ed? >> reporter: wolf, we've just confirmed with a law enforcement source as to where these four guns were purchased. we've been told by this law enforcement source that all four guns were purchased legally within the last six months. two of the guns were purchased at a bass pro shop in the city of denver. one of the guns was purchased at a mountain gander gun store here in the town of aurora. another was purchased at a gander mountain in thornton, colorado, as well. again, law enforcement source saying those guns were purchased legally within the last six months. we're also told by that law enforcement source that they had found a drum magazine that was connected to the ar-15 rifle. this would have given james holmes the ability to shoot about 100 rounds with that magazine. and the source saying obviously that gave him much more capability to fire off many many rounds once inside that theater. and, wolf, what we've learned from talking to wi
has had little effect on the latest cnn poll of polls which shows the race nearly deadlocked. but another poll from usa today and gallup could be more worrisome for romney. it shows a majority of americans want to see more of the gop contender's tax returns. something mrs. romney told abc is not happening. >> you just want to give more material for more attack. that's just the answer. and we've given all people need to know and understand about our financial situation and about how we live our life. >> reporter: meanwhile, romney may be getting a lifeline from all people -- former house speaker nans si pelosi said earlier today that too much time in this campaign has been spent on the tax return issue. meanwhile, over in the senate john mccain tells cnn's piers morgan, his team found nothing in the tax returns that would have disqualified romney in his own vice presidential search four years ago. wolf. >> so i take it this notion that we had earlier in the week that a vice presidential running mate could be selected before he heads off to london for the olympic games and then

he misspoke in that conference call. let's bring in our cnn chief political analyst gloria borger in "the situation room" as well. the ad we just saw in dan's piece, part of a broader picture that the obama administration, the obama campaign is trying to project. >> as you know this is the summer when it's time to define your opponent. it's not rocket science here, wolf. what the obama campaign is trying to do is paint a very, very unflattering portrait of mitt romney. he is, according to the obama campaign, secretive, tax avoiding businessman who outsources jobs and cares nothing about the middle class. that is of course on top of his wealth. so it's a caricature but sometimes care ka churs can stick particularly when you're spending $25 million a month most of which is in negative advertising. so that can stick. and the problem for romney right now is that unless he releases his taxes or continues to -- or give some more information about his taxes or even bain, these questions will be raised. don't forget, wolf, you were there. these questions were raised by his republican oppo

of the health care debate keep it on cnn. monitor cnn.com throughout the day. >> i'll get ali off the ledge and switch gears. >>> banned for life. this does not bode well for lance armstrong. three of lance armstrong's closest cycling advisers, two doctors and a trainer have received what's really considered to be the death penalty in sports from the u.s. anti-doping agency. they were all associated with lance armstrong's former u.s. postal service cycling team. the agency says they were trafficking in performance enhancing drugs during all or part of lance armstrong's seven tour de france victories. armstrong himself is not part of that. but he is fighting charges as well that he used banned drugs. he filed a lawsuit. it was dismissed. he went ahead and refiled that lawsuit in a flash, really. all within a matter of days. a lawsuit against the anti-doping agency to try to help keep their case from going forward. stay tuned to this space. it may be dismissed again. it may go forward. >> there's been anti-doping agency news almost every day. one might start to wonder whether they are on a pe
today. >> cnn political analyst rolen martin in houston where romney spoke. good to see you. >> like wise. >> tell us what you think romney thinks he'll accomplish here when you take a look at the polls and they say what about 5% african-americans support romney compared to 87% for president obama. >> well, first of all i think if you go back to a couple things, obvious obviously senator obama got the percent of the vote in 2008. in 1998 speaker gingrich was the leader of the house he was perceived as far too antagonist tick when it came to minorities and that was not appealing to suburban white women. then governor george w. bush ran in 2000 with compassionate conservativism and that was a lot more appealing to those constituents. so really what mitt romney is doing is not necessarily to get significant numbers of black votes but to say to independent voters out there, i am reaching out. i'm not simply trying to be only looking at one ethnic group when it comes to the gop. i think that's really what the intention is to say i'm open, have open arms to reach out to many other people.
for watching. let's go to carol costello, "cnn newsroom" begins right now. >>> happening right now in the newsroom, sweltering heat. nearly 2 million people still don't have power and 16 states are under heat advisories or warnings. when will things start to cool down and when will the power come back on? plus, cover-up. cnn has seen e-mails from top brass to suggest a cover-up on jerry sandusky's child rape accusations. one from the university's president says dealing with the sex abuse within the school was, quote, humane. it's a cnn exclusive. plus -- return to power. the political party that ruled mexico for 70 years is back. you're looking at mexico's projected new president, pena nieto. on his agenda reduce the violence from drug cartels that seem to rule the country, but can he do it? >>> a rematch is on or is it? this photo finish was too close to call so these two runners are duking it out tonight fighting for that olympic dream but now reports suggest one of them might not run.

. >> reporter: wolf, naacp leaders told cnn they praised mitt romney for showing what they called courage in coming to this convention today. but safe to say mitt romney did not hide his positions on issues that are dear to the civil rights group. and members of the naacp did not hide their feelings about mitt romney. >> honorable mitt romney this morning is our speaker. [ applause ] >> reporter: at first the applause for mitt romney at the naacp was polite. but that did not last long. when the gop contender pledged to get the national debt under control in part by repealing the president's health care law, the crowd let him have it. >> and so to do that i'm going to eliminate every non-essential expensive program i can find. that includes obama care. and i'm going to work to reform and save -- >> reporter: the boos lasted 15 seconds. the most sustained negative response romney has received in this campaign. the chair of the naacp's national board said members objected to romney's use of the term obama care, a buzz word coined by the critics. >> that was a loaded statement. and the crowd
